The Andhra Pradesh Police Department is the law enforcement agency for the state of Andhra Pradesh in India. After the state split into Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, in 2014, the police forces also split up.

Organizational structure

Andhra Pradesh Police Department comes under direct control of Department of Home Affairs, Government of Andhra Pradesh. The Andhra Pradesh Police is headed by Director General of Police (DGP).[2]

Within a year of the formation of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh Police got into a controversy that puts its role as law enforcer in question. http://api.wikiomni.com_pedia/pages/2015_sandalwood_smugglers_encounter_in_Andhra_Pradesh On 7 April 2015, Andhra Pradesh Police shot twenty suspected woodcutters in the Seshachalam forest in Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh, India. Human rights activists did not believe the police version of the shootings. They say some of the bodies had burn marks and others had bullet injuries in the chest and head. Witnesses said that some of those killed were pulled off a bus by the policemen. K. Kranthi Chaitanya, State executive member of the Andhra Pradesh Civil Liberties Committee (APCLC) stated that "We have always maintained that it was a fake encounter and that the workers were brought to the spot and killed. The forensic report, call data records, SIT report, etc. all prove our stand,"
